Inspiration as a musician: I am mostly inspired by art – I love impressionist and abstract paintings. Monet and Kandinsky are my favorites.

Current playlist: I like to listen to non-classical music when I am not studying. The exception is trombone choir and brass music. I can't get enough of the sound of a great brass choir!

Hobbies: Hiking, coffee roasting, and dog training.
